HONDURAN What the fuck is power-violence anyway…sub-sub-genres rule

 

HONDURAN – s/t 7”

@@@@ of 5

I will admit I guess I don’t really know what power-violence is.  Sometimes I think a band plays chaotic crust and I’ll be corrected and told they are power-violence.  Other times I think a band plays grind and again I am corrected and told they are power-violence.  My brother is telling me because of the time changes and slow parts its power-violence.

Who gives a fuck if it kicks ass…Isnt that what really counts?  To me these dudes sound like an insane mix of NEUROSIS, WATCH THEM DIE and NAPALM DEATH.  I think they are a crusty, grind band that kicks major booty.  They go in for the strike and get the job done.  None of this over the top, forever-building-over-dramatic-epic-post-hardcore-crust stuff I seem to be hearing so much of these days.  They are like a hit squad being sent into the jungles of Honduras to sneak up (the slow parts) and make the bloody fucking kill (the un-slow parts).  Word bitch!

The production is as thick as John Goodman’s left thigh.  Thick and fucking meaty.  Kinda of smelly even…  There’s a nice crusty fuzz to it and it sounds so warm.  Ahhhh, the wonders of vinyl.  With that, although the music is grade A brutal it is easy on the ears.

Badass record.  Just one of those records that you just keep flipping over and over because it rages so fricken’ hard.  Excellent. (JoshMosh)

  1. I gave up on trying to keep track of all the subgenres. I always was lead to believe that NINE SHOCKS TERROR were “powerviolence”. And then I heard that CEREMONY’s early stuff was “powerviolence”. I think I saw something where CHARLES BRONSON were referred to as “powerviolence”. So I don’t even know. It’s all just hardcore to me.
    Oh, and yeah, full on-HONDURAN tear it up. Thanks for posting.

  2. […] I reviewed the latest release from Portland’s Power Violent HONDURAN (read the review here).  That spinning piece of black wax was my introduction to the these elite hit squad of […]
